ABOUT THE PERFORMER

"Hassan Rogers"In 1991, Hassan Rogers began his work with children in the East Cleveland School District’s early childhood/special education program. Hassan’s desire to help unlock the creative potential in children led him to join Karamu House’s Drama/Theatre for Youth (DTY) project. An educational theater-outreach initiative that began in 1992, DTY garnered the Ann Flagg Award for Excellence in Arts Education during Hassan’s first season with Karamu.

During his time with Karamu, Hassan showed his breadth and depth as an actor, gaining acclaim as a powerful presence on stage. Storytime with Hassan was launched in 1993. This touring, interactive storytelling production was designed to provide unique Language Arts curriculum supplements and performances. Some 25 years later, Storytime with Hassan has toured to 10 school districts in three states, impacting over 200,000 children and adults to discover the magic that happens in the classroom and on stage.

In 1999, Hassan won a national playwrights' competition for his autobiographical play, Mrs. Rogers’ Back Porch. The critically acclaimed production featured Hassan in multiple capacities: writer, director and principal actor. That year, he began a 10-year guest directorship at Karamu House Theater, one of the nation’s oldest theatre companies. While pursuing his love of theater arts, he concurrently began to make a name for himself as a voice-over artist and segment producer in the world of sports journalism and broadcasting.

Hassan’s voice-character creations are heard worldwide on the internationally syndicated radio program Your Story Hour. Hassan’s most recent accomplishment is becoming a contributing writer for The Regal Media Group. Now, Hassan’s singular perspectives can be read worldwide.
